An open letter to Hollywood

An open letter to whom it may concern at

Paramount and Twentieth Century Fox:

I saw Noah last year and over the weekend I saw Exodus.

I want to thank you for choosing ART.

You see after viewing Noah and Exodus I felt inspired to write you and just THANK YOU for keeping it REAL on these last two films. It's just great to see Studios take a risk for once and really go out on a limb. With all the formulaic and silly reboots over the last couple of decades, everything from Smurfs to the A-Team, it's just refreshing to see such a genuine and sudden appetite for ART.

Sure, you could have played it safe and served the over 260 million Christians out there. But instead you were like, "Nah, we're gonna keep this on the Rizzle and tell it OUR way, Ten Commandments", that's been done, that's not art". You don't win an Oscar by doing the same thing twice. Oh' and let's not forget The Passion of the Christ that stinker made like a billion dollars, anything that makes that kind of money AIN'T ART. Noah with rock people! That is art!"

It's thrilling to see the studios go all Cannes on us, forget the bottom line; "We want to make a STATEMENT."

May I suggest, if you, your investors or shareholders, are interested in doing another Bible film, just to like throw people off their game, you could spend half the money and hire my new film unit the American Dream Labs. I know we don't have the resume in film that Ridley Scott or the guy that made "the black swan", but, sometimes what is on the paper isn't what is important. My team does have a very long history of undeniable success.

We would take a CRAZY approach to film-making, what we would do is tell a story that proclaims God is real. We would make a picture about GOOD MEN that were GOOD fathers, we would show their weakness, but we would give them the benefit of the doubt. Oh and I almost forgot we would follow the story as outlined in the Bible, because the 260 million believers out there just might care to see their stories HONORED and RESPECTED. They just might want to see their heroes portrayed as heroes and the villains as villains.

Now that would be some Avant-garde stuff right there, to Honor the story, that's like some 4th floor MOMA over your head type ART.

But sincerely Rob Moore Vice Chairman of Paramount pictures, I remember the look in your eyes in your screening room as you tried your best to convince us that Noah could be a hit. You had convinced yourself because you were being a good soldier for the studio. Let's change the course.

We are currently in development on several projects. We intend on doing it ourselves as it doesn't seem Hollywood has any intention of even trying to understand a business model that works. Maybe we are wrong. If so: Please take us up on our challenge, half the budget and we will quadruple your sales on the same film.

260 million fans of the Bible would love to see you set the record straight.

Sincerely,

Glenn Beck CEO

Ben McPherson President

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."
